Meditation Assistant Timer

Meditation Assistant Timer


Meditation Assistant is the best meditation timer for Android. Its features (e.g., automatically setting your device to vibrate/silent while you meditate) and customization (e.g., choosing any file on your device as the start/finish/interval sound for your session) make it the ideal assistant to your meditation practice.

This application will help your practice by giving you an easy to read overview of your progress (see screenshots), as well as display your meditation streak. Your streak is calculated based on the number of consecutive days you have recorded at least one session. As your streak grows, "not breaking the chain" becomes quite important. Soon you will be meditating once a day, even if it's five or ten minutes out of your schedule.

A major feature in this application is the ability to share your sessions online. Though entirely optional, sharing your progress online adds another dimension to your accountability. Now that you've gone public, as your streak increases more users will see it as a goal of their own. One user has posted ONE YEAR! of consecutive days of meditation. Could you achieve the same?

Going online is not necessary to gain incredible benefits from Meditation Assistant. Save your sessions locally to your device, and you will not be penalized or harassed in any way. The online community is there if and when you choose to use it.

If you're still wondering whether this is the right application for you, read over the reviews. It was designed with two concepts in mind, simplicity and functionality. Once you've recorded your first session, you will understand why users stay with Meditation Assistant.

Questions? Comments? Suggestions? Feedback is welcome. Several features now implemented were originally ideas posed by users. Email the developer: [email protected]

By far the best Cleanest, most straightforward, practical meditation timer. Options to log each session as a pithy thought. You can log your sessions publicly. I love seeing how the rest of the community is doing. App developer is fast to respond to any queries or comments via email.

Tried quite a few, this one is the one I use Probably the most used app on my phone that isn't my email account. Only feature requests I have would be to allow a 20 min interval bell and a progress indicator that shows days with more than one session. Huge thanks to the developer.

Great tool I've tried a few meditation apps and this is the best. Feature-rich, yet very simple for daily use.
